Bike Touring Highlight
It is worthwhile in any case to visit the Baldeneysee by bike. Flat and the bike path is well developed. At the house Scheppen you can take a break. But overcrowded on weekends and just too crowded. Unfortunately it does not make fun anymore.

The Baldeneysee is used today, among other things, for water sports and as a local recreation area. On its banks in Heisingen is the Heisinger Bogen bird sanctuary, a breeding ground for great crested grebes, cormorants, herons and other endangered birds.
The Hespertalbahn, a museum train, runs on the south-east bank in summer.
The continuously developed footpaths and cycle paths around the lake have a length of about 14 kilometers. This is where the "Marathon around Lake Baldeney" takes place.
Annual sailing regattas are held on the lake, some of which are of national importance. There is also a regatta course for rowing and canoe racing and underwater anchorages for canoe polo pitches. Competitions up to European championships are held here.
